Work is priority, not bothered about local MP, MLA: PM Modi in Lok Sabha
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the government cares for 125 Indians and do not bothered about local MPs, MLAs as work is concerned. He said in response to Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge's statement on railway line in Karnataka.
PM Modi said," The NDA Government has changed the work culture in the nation. Projects are not only thought about well but also executed in a timely manner."
He said, "Since Kharge Ji spoke about railways and Karnataka, let me tell the truth about the Bidar-Kalburgi rail line. The project was approved by the Vajpayee Government and from 2004 till 2013 nothing was done. It is when a Government under BS Yeddyurappa gave approvals work could begin."
"The approvals by the BS Yeddyurappa Government in Karnataka made it possible to work quickly on the rail line. We do not bother who is the local MP or MLA, which party they belong to. We serve the nation and care for 125 crore Indians," said PM Modi.
"The NDA government is building more roads than the previous one. We have given a strong boost to the infrastructure sector across the nation," PM Modi added.
PM Modi was speaking on the motion to President's speech in Lok Sabha.
